Hailed by mountain lovers as Colorado's "best open air market," The Cherry Creek Farmers Market has more than just a good reputation.

Located near the famous Cherry Creek shopping center in downtown Denver, the market is one of several European-inspired farmers markets in Colorado focused on local agriculture and the development of modern organic standards. This foodie utopia is anything but just local produce, however. A selection of multiple stands offers seasonal peaches, apples, leafy greens, watermelon-radishes, cheeses, biscuits, hand-woven baskets, and assorted wine from the Western Slope.

Open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the market was founded by Chris and Michele Bruke both dedicated to organic eating and sustainability. The outdoor shop gives regional farmers a time to showcase their freshest, most nutritious items while integrating a gourmet style to buying (and living) local. With two days of the week in which to partake, this Denver venue affords individuals a slate of edible options, as well as the chance for families, friends, and pets to come together as a community. Local chefs join the experience as well, serving-up a variety of gourmet sauces, jams, honey, and high-end meats.

Known for its numerous food vendors and specialized culinary trucks such as "The Biscuit Bus," prepared food is a large part of the market's attraction. From homemade tamales, chipotle cheddar kettle corn, smoked buffalo shanks, gyros, waffles, and crepes, the prepared food is plentiful and distinctive.

Peppered with cash-paying crowds, wild flower boutiques, fruit preserves, gluten-free baked goods, fresh lavender soaps, and even vegetarian dog treats, Cherry Creek Farmers Market satisfies more than just appetites.
